Oh, you've been on a fast train and it's going off the rails
And you can't come back, can't come back again
And you start breaking down in the pouring rain
Oh, you've been on a fast train... On a fast train

And your lover has gone away, don't it make you feel so sad
And you go on a journey way into the land
And you start breaking down 'cause you're under strain
And you jumpin on... you're jumpin' on a fast train

Gotta go on a lam, stuck in no-man's land
Ain't nobody on your waveband
Ain't nobody gonna lend you a helping hand
And you start breaking down and you go into the sound
What you hear is that fast train

And you keep on moving... onto the sound of the wheels
Oh deep down in your heart... do you really know how you feel
Then you start breaking down... go into the pain
Keep on moving on a fast train

Well, you're way over the line, next thing you're out of your mind
And you're out of your depth, and through the window she crept
Oh, there's nowhere to go... in the sleet and the snow
Just keep on moving... on a fast train
Moving on a fast

You got to go on the lam, stuck in no-man's land
Ain't nobody on your waveband
gonna lend you a helping hand
and you're all alone, can you really make it on your own?
Keep on moving on a fast train

Oh, going nowhere, how long can it last?
Oh, keep on moving keep on moving on a fast train
Going nowhere, across the desert sand, through the barren waste
On a fast train going nowhere

On a fast train going nowhere
